Black Queer Southern Women @ Auburn Ave. Research Library

Event date: 
Sunday, March 24, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

The Auburn Avenue Research Library will host Dr. E. Patrick Johnson, the Carlos Montezuma Professor of Performance Studies and African American Studies at Northwestern University, who will discuss his latest publication, “Black. Queer. Southern. Women. An Oral History”. Drawn from the life narratives of more than seventy African American queer women who were born, raised, and continue to reside in the American South, this book powerfully reveals the way these women experience and express racial, sexual, gender, and class identities--all linked by a place where such identities have generally placed them on the margins of society. Using methods of oral history and performance ethnography, Dr. Johnson's work vividly enriches the historical record of racialized sexual minorities in the South and brings to light the realities of the region's thriving black lesbian communities. Charis will sell books. This event is free and open to the public at 101 Auburn Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30303.
